AA 089: Liz Anthony on Autoimmune Diseases, the Dark Side of Skinny, and Fighting for Your Health

January 1, 2018

This week I’m chatting with Liz Anthony from thatpaleogirl.com! In this episode, Liz opens up about her battles with different autoimmune diseases and how she has worked through her health issues over the years. We talk about how she found out she had lupus, her doctors’ responses to her mysterious symptoms, and what it’s like to have an autoimmune disease. We also talk about what it’s like when no one believes you’re truly sick, how to manage people’s judgments when you’re sick or underweight, and how she handled being in college and working while struggling with her health. Liz shares what it was like traveling the world while she had her health struggles, how she discovered she has Celiac disease, and how the Western medical system treated her. We discuss what it’s like to always be the “skinny” one, the comments people make about weight, and what it’s like to gain weight. We also talk about healing diets, learning to trust your body and hunger signals, and what Liz does now to protect her health.

You can find Liz on Instagram (@that.paleo.girl) and on her website, thatpaleogirl.com!
